BORT, Catherine M.

The remains of Mrs. Ben E. Bort were laid in Riverside this afternoon. A great following of friends were present at the funeral service which was held from the home on the West side at 1:30.

At the request of the daughter only a simple service was conducted. Dr. Troy of the English Methodist Church making a few comforting remarks. A long cortege followed the body to the cemetery.

Next Sunday morning Dr. Troy will preach a memorial sermon in memory of this lady whose friends numbered by the hundreds. In connection with this the ladies of the Missionary Society are requested to meet in the basement of the church preceding the sermon that they may be present in the church in a body during the sermon.

Mrs. Bort was a member of that society and one of the most earnest workers. The O. E. had charge of the services at Riverside this afternoon.
